About Dr. Alessandra Wall
A recovering perfectionist and advocate for authenticity, Alessandra is here to share her desire to help every woman find value and strength in their own voice. Get ready for a look back at the historical struggles of women and how it impacts the space we occupy today, how the social media revolution is changing how we relate to one another, and what we should be teaching the young men and women of today for a better tomorrow. Plus, Alessandra is telling us all about her new project, In Her Shoes, and how you can become a part of it.
Alessandra and In Her Shoes work to create a database of stories of what it means to be a woman in the 21st Century and create real conversations through women around the world to share their journey and walk in someone else’s shoes. Today she is here to tell you that your story matters, and help harness our own inner power to help lift up ourselves and others.
Do you feel a desire to share your journey of what it is like to be a modern woman? Does the vulnerability of the In Her Shoes project excite or worry you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!
